Dr Bradley Wilsmore Cardiologist & Cardiac Electrophysiologist BSc(Hons), MBBS(Hons), PhD, FRACP, FCSANZ, CCDS, CEPS
Dr Wilsmore is currently a staff specialist in cardiology specialising in electrophysiology and conjoint lecturer (University of Newcastle). He is a 2004 Graduate of Sydney University. Dr Wilsmore's junior medical training was performed at Royal North Shore, Gosford, and Royal Brisbane. He subsequently completed a two year Electrophysiology Fellowship at the number one hospital for heart care in the USA, the Cleveland Clinic, which involved all aspects of electrophysiology including ablations, device implants and extractions. He has also successfully completed his international heart rhythm board exams (2013).
What is the GP’s role in diagnosing and treating atrial fibrillation (AF)? Dr Bradley Wilsmore will guide you through identifying AF from other arrhythmias, and compare and contrast safety outcomes of novel oral anticoagulants (NOACs). You will also learn about NOAC reversal in emergencies for anticoagulated patients. There will be an opportunity to discuss the practical application of real-world safety evidence for treatment decisions, using interactive case studies. Participants are also encouraged to take part in an interactive Q&A with Dr Wilsmore.
